Which School of Feng Shui should you use?
“There is a muscular energy
in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind”.
There are 3 basic schools of Feng Shui:
Form School, Compass School and Black Hat Feng Shui. Form school is the
original and most accurate.
Feng Shui developed
thousands of years ago in little villages of the Orient. It was called Folk
Feng Shui because each village had there own guidelines on how to use it.
Their livelihoods were dependent on it. They studied the formations of the
land and ways of the wind & water (Feng Shui translated means the way of Wind
& Water) to determine the best sitting for their survival. Over time Feng
Shui developed and was used by emperors to ensure their success.
The original Feng Shui Masters were hired by
emperors to wage war. It is said that they had the power to manipulate the
wind, water and fog to help the outcome of battles. Folk Lore has it that the
Emperor was fearful that they would use their skills against him, so he
ordered the Feng Shui Masters put to death.
Many of the Feng Shui Masters went into
hiding in the Buddhist Monasteries in fear for their lives. Many Monks were
trained in the ways of Feng Shui. This is why today there is a Black Hat
School of Feng Shui today.
This is the origin of Feng Shui and what is
called Form School Feng Shui. It addresses the energies of the roads, rivers,
mountains and placement of structures in relationship to them. It premises
are based upon Mother Nature not man (as you will see in the Compass School
description). Please read the article “Everything is Energy” on this site
for more detailed information on this School.
Typically you will find that Form School is
utilized with either Black Hat School or Compass school but not both.
The Black Hat School Ba-Gua - Why the Ba-gua works
The Black Hat school of
Feng Shui uses what is called the Ba-Gua. When you occupy a structure it is
important to create and set the electromagnetic field for that structure that
The Later Heaven Pa-k’ua,
which was based upon compass directions, has been transformed into the Ba-Gua,
the eight sided symbol that represents the eight stations of life, which is
based upon the location of the entrance to your structure (not a compass).
The Ba-Gua is activated by the group mind.
To understand the group
mind I will tell a story that I have heard many times. It is called the 100th
There were several
small, uninhabited islands. Monkeys were the only creatures living on these
islands. There was no accessibility between islands. They monkeys survived
by digging for roots for food.
A group of scientists
came to one of the islands to do research. One of the scientists befriended
one of the monkeys and taught the monkey to take the roots to the ocean and
wash them before eating them.
The group of scientists
finished their work and returned home. Back on the island the one lone monkey
taught all of the monkeys on that island how to wash their roots before
When the scientists
returned months later, they found that on all of the other islands all of the
monkeys were washing their roots before eating.
It is said that, once a
thought form is accepted by 100 people, that thought form becomes part of the
psychic web and becomes common knowledge or the group mind. This group mind
is very powerful because it is accepted and believed in by the masses.
Compass School - Using a Lo Pan (Compass) to read your Fortune
“Men go abroad to wonder at
the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses
of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the
stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.”
When you read about any specific compass
direction i.e.; northeast, southwest, you are reading about Compass School
Feng Shui and the Lo Pan. This schools is based upon thousands of years of
data and is a man made system.
The history of the Lo Pan compass takes us
back to the Chou dynasty (770-476 BCE), when emperor Shing combined the
knowledge of the compass with that of the I-ching. The Compass consists of a
magnetic needle that point towards magnetic north not true north. The
foundation of the I-ching is in the trigrams.
The trigrams are the set of three broken
and/or solid lines that you typically find around a Chinese mirror.
In Traditional Compass school these trigrams
“determine the divination of fortune” as Evelyn Lip as written. The
traditional Lo Pan has 36 rings of information. These trigrams occupy the
first circle of the luopan. How these rings line up with the compass and the
combination of the reading of these rings determines your fortune.
The Inaccuracy of reading degrees on the Compass
“Energy and persistence
conquer all things.”
Earth has an electromagnetic field. Our
solar sun also has an electromagnetic field. Our solar sun goes thru 11year
cycles of solar fluctuations called sun flares that create solar wind. In
2003 two of the strongest flares ever recorded flashed. National Geographic
says that we are in the height of the sunspot cycle.
The fluctuations from our solar sun have a
major impact on the planet earth. This solar wind creates a vibration that
disturbs the electromagnetic field of the earth. The greater the intensity of
the solar fluctuations and the amount of fluctuations will determine the
amount of disturbances of the earth’s electromagnetic field.
The history of these solar fluctuations can
be found in the earth’s tectonic plates. It is believed that at one time all
of the continents of the earth were connected. It is also believed that the
effects from on solar system and galaxy have caused the shift to the separate
The Earth’s electromagnetic field is created
by a solid iron inner core and a molten outer core. These two cores move in
opposite directions. It is this movement of the cores that creates the energy
that moves in the magnet pole that creates the earth’s magnetic field and
Magnetic North and True North (the Earth’s
axis) although thought to be one in the same, are not. Magnet North moves an
average of 40 kilometers every year. In the last 100 years Magnetic North has
moved approximately 1200 kilometers.
This difference between Magnet North and the
True North is called Magnetic Declination. Magnetic North is also thought to
be a specific point on the planet, but is not. It is an average point that
travels in an elliptical shape that can vary as much as 160 kilometers at any
“Magnetic North is always in constant movement”
Geological Survey of Canada.
When the vibration from the solar wind hits
the earth, it disturbs the electromagnetic field of the earth, which vibrates
the magnetic pole, moving magnetic north in this elliptical shape. The
greater the intensity and amount of solar wind will determine the elliptical
movement of Magnetic North.
If you are determining placement of
furniture based upon magnetic north, the degrees are not critical, the overall
direction is. However, if you are determining your property or site location
based upon Magnetic North your compass reading will not be specifically
accurate in reading the actual degrees of the location.
The addition or subtraction of the Magnetic
Declination to your compass reading will give you a close reading, however, it
will not be accurate degree because magnetic north is in constant movement.
The Magnetic Declination will depend upon
your location. “Magnetic declination is zero along a line that runs west of
Hudson Bay, past the western tip of Lake Superior, to the west of Chicago,
through the Gulf of Mexico then down the west side of South America and so.
Another agonic line passes through Scandinavia, central Europe and then into
Africa before curving up through Asia.” says Larry Newitt
The rings and reading of the Lo Pan
Compass, includes measurements as small as 1 degree. Two or more of the 36
compass rings are lined up to divine your fortune. See the picture below.
The constant movement of Magnetic North
dilutes the accuracy of reading degrees on a compass. In today’s solar
environment, obtaining an accurate reading of your fortune using degrees of
the compass is like telling the earth to stand still.
This information does not impact
interpretations based upon generic directions.
Earlier Heaven and Later Heaven Methodologies of Compass School
of the most used rings of the Lo pan compass are associated with the trigrams.
These are the way of the Earlier Heaven and the way of the Later Heaven. The
way of the Earlier Heaven determines the location of “earth energy” and
destructive energy and is associated with specific directions on the compass.
In the way of the Earlier Heaven, the trigrams are also associated with the
compass directions. The way of Later Heaven determines the movement of energy
on a property. In the way of the Later Heaven the trigrams were also
associated with the compass directions, however, as Eva Wong has written “with
the Nine Palaces, the trigrams are no longer tied to a direction”. Eva Wong
has also written “It is the movement of the trigrams in the Nine Palaces that
reveals the cycle of changes, allowing us to observe the changes in the swirl
of the universe”. So the trigrams are still an effective means of divination,
they are just no longer tied to the compass direction.

"My husband has smoked
cigarettes for 17 years and has had a painful medical
condition for about 4 years. He is not one to see a doctor,
so he generally just suffered through his pain and
inconvenience. This had a dramatic impact on our
relationship and lives. I began putting Feng Shui
enhancements in our Health area and about two months later
he was living relatively pain free. Now, he didn't
recognize it as a Feng Shui cure because he went to the
library and got online and did research. He found that a
few lifestyle changes, diet and exercise would "correct" is
problem. So he made the appropriate changes. I know this
was a Feng Shui cure since he was living with the pain for 4
years, but found a solution only months after the
enhancements were in place. With that success, I added more
enhancements to the health area of the master bedroom.
About 4 to 6 weeks later he quit smoking. Again, it wasn't
magic, he used an herbal supplement and a lot of willpower,
but it is compelling that after 17 years of smoking he
decided to quit now that there were Feng Shui cures in our
